unknown and exciting

I’m starting to remember how exciting new people are. Not that I’m willing to meet a whole group in bulk, but individual people themselves can be fascinating. Just learning their likes and dislikes, the kind of music they listen to, even if they just prefer cats or dogs — all those questions open up a whole nebula of characteristics that make them who they are. It’s so interesting.

I guess the only drawback I worry about is that, no matter how magical a person seems in the beginning, are we doomed to eventually see them through mundane glasses? Or is there some magical connection out there that can prevent that from happening?
